Fashion Fact Friday - Monokini

As the hot fourth of July weekend approaches us and leads us to wandering the nearest beach, we have the perfect term for you to share while catching some rays! A “monokini” was first seen in the 1960s, originally designed by Rudi Gernreich, that consisted of only a small, closed-fitting bottom and two straps, yes this was a topless swimsuit for women. Now and days a monokini is defined as the newest must have swimsuit that features two wide side cut outs. This is specifically found on the trendy one-piece swimsuits as women are getting more familiar with them this summer over the typical two-piece bikini. This innovative design allows women to feel comfortable while sexy all at the same time! Be on the lookout of the monokini this weekend!
